Comment (by wpmuguru):

 It's not so much load order as a change in implementation. In MU, the
 default DB class was replaced when plugged.

 In 3.0 a bit of code was added to transition to the current implementation
 which enables someone writing a DB class for WP to extend the default
 class (which is what we hope everyone will do). The advantage of extending
 the default class is that most bugfixes and improvements in the default
 class are handed on to the plugin.

 HyperDB does the same as SharDB:

 If your four BBDB_ constants match the global table, bbPres should work

 I can't really do much from a SharDB side unless there is a way for me to
 plug BPDB. Possibly you could put a class_exists() check around the class
